After seeing no increase in the number of people traveling and recovery not expected anytime soon, Heathrow Airport Holdings Limited (formerly BAA) has decided to keep London Heathrow Airports Terminal 4 closed until the end of 2021.
According to a press release, it was mentioned that Boris Johnsons’ government’s decision to bring about the end of tax-free shopping could be “the final nail in the coffin for struggling businesses.”
Terminal 4 was closed during the first national lockdown. The decision saw airlines such as KLM, Air France and Etihad move to Terminal 2.
This came after, the UK government added popular tourist destination the Canary Islands to the quarantine list on Thursday.
From early Saturday morning, people returning to Britain from the islands have to self-isolate.
